Not to mention the rantings of an Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood Cleric by the name of Yusuf al-Qaradawi who argues in short, that Israeli children are fair game as they will grow up to be soldiers. So, therefore murdering them is not a problem and if you die doing so, it's martyrdom.
Any death whether deliberate or accidental is a tragedy, but to call for the murder of children is flat out despicable and sick. How are you supposed to negotiate with individuals who believe or support such notions?
